I absolutely adore jam.  I will literally put it on anything from toast to in a big bowl of greek yogurt to even just eating a spoonful on it’s own but my favorite way to consume it is definitely in a peanut butter and jelly (well, jam in this case but peanut butter and jam sandwich just doesn’t have the same ring!) sandwich.  I have gone on spurts where that is all I will eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for weeks on end because I just enjoy them so much.  My favorite way to make them is taking two pieces of whole grain bread (the thick, grain-y stuff) and spreading creamy peanut butter on one slice and crunchy on the other, then going and plopping a bunch of jam on one slice before spreading it around and putting the slices of bread together.  So delicious!

 

Anyway, this raspberry chia jam is so easy to make! It only takes 15 minutes and 3 ingredients! I intended to make this blueberry lemon chia jam but raspberries were on sale so I changed my direction a bit but I was really happy with the results.  Raspberry jam is one of my favorite flavors! It is just so tasty!
